I have been reading basically the same as you,but this is surface water temps.I feel the fishing will explode when we get a few of those warm 75-80 days an 60 nights.The water on the bottom is still pretty chilly.Our basic problem is this November type weather in May.Originally posted by A Frayed Knot:
At what water temp does the fluke fishing turn on. I have caught a few so far but the water temp has been 59 degrees at high water and 62/63 at the bottom of the tide. Inquiring minds want to know.
You NAILED it candyman, "especially" on thoes sllooww drifts or anchored & casting a hot spot. In addition, always remember the "drop back" for fluke hookupsOriginally posted by candyman:
I also concur....most importantly...THEY WANT MINNIES.
They'll hit and hang on other stuff but it's the minnie that makes them throw caution to the wind.
At 40 bucks a pop for each strip and having been boarded once I will pass on the flounder belly.Originally posted by BT3100:
Don't forget the flounder belly, large 6" strips using a bucktail. The larger strip will net less shorts. Last 1/2 of low tide is great advise. Dont forget to try different rigs, colors and bait. You never know what the flavor of the day may be.
